Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy was a radio adventure series which maintained its popularity from 1933 to 1951. The program originated at WBBM in Chicago on July 31, 1933, and was later carried on CBS, then NBC and finally ABC.
A short Jack Armstrong animated TV pilot was developed by Hanna-Barbera for a proposed television series. However, when negotiations for rights to the characters collapsed, the planned series was reworked into what became the animated adventure Jonny Quest (1964). Some of the Jack Armstrong footage survived in the closing credits for Jonny Quest.

This was GREAT.... My DADDY DOB 4-27-1927 said he almost broke his pedals off his bike to get home to listen to this program...didn't it start before 1940??? Course he would have been around 13yo....he passed on in May 2004 I got to play him some MP3's before he passed on though...he couldn't believe all this was on the Internet...
I once hooked up a old Motorola radio to the Internet... the Senior Center folks went CRAZY....I loved it to, as I taught Seniors to how to run PC's at Center.
